Forum: classic_tv Subject: Re: Which countries had TV in the 1950s? More than you may think!

I'm not sure I understand the question. But it's an odd thing to ask me, a rather challeged person who is more-or-less forced to spend most of the day in his bedroom.

If "like us" you mean 1950s/1960s TV fans, then they're out of luck, as the only shows of that era in repeats in Australian TV are same American ones which has been repeated to death in the english-speaking world: "Bewitched", etc etc.

Americans are lucky to be able to view so many of their 1950s/1960s shows so easily on DVD, TV repeats, and on the Internet Archive/YouTube. People of countries like Australia and Canada are much less lucky.

I don't even think any telerecordings aka kinescopes remain of Melbourne-produced TV of 1956, though both HSV-7 and ABV-2 had kinescoping equipment by November 1956, comfirmed by articles in "The Age" and "The Argus" that mention them showing telerecordings of olympic events later in the day of the event...
